Lee Peltier: Closing in on a move to Leeds from Leicester
Sky Sports understands Leicester City defender Lee Peltier is undergoing a medical at Leeds United.
Leeds have been chasing Peltier all summer and they have now agreed a fee with Leicester for the former Liverpool youngster.
Peltier joined Leicester from Huddersfield Town last summer, but it is understood he no longer features in manager Nigel Pearson's plans.
Whites boss Neil Warnock has confirmed his interest in Peltier as he looks to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new season.
Huddersfield have also been linked with a move to re-sign Peltier, but it appears Leeds are in pole position to land the 25-year-old.
Peltier is set to hold talks with Leeds and Warnock will be hoping to tie up the deal as he continues his rebuilding plans at Elland Road.
